Oracle Appcasts

I talked about Oracle Podcasting in a previous post. They now have a more Applications oriented podcast available called Oracle Appcasts. I’ve been commuting quite a lot recently so stacked up these podcasts on my mp3 player and had a listen. I have to say I’m quite pleased with the offering. According to the Oracle site:

Oracle AppCasts are online audio interviews with Oracle customers, partners, product and industry experts, delivered via RSS podcasting or on your computer at www.oracle.com/appcasts.

A listing of what’s available to listen to now:

Mini MRP - Free BOM, Inventory Management and Stock Control Software

Noticed the MiniMRP site showing up in in my Google Ads, you might want to try out this software if you’re looking for a lightweight solution for Bill of Materials, Inventory Management and Stock Control.

According to the site:

miniMRP 2.1 for Windows 95/98/Me/2000 & XP is a new, easy to use inventory manager with some additional features usually only found in larger ERP/MRP systems. If you need more than a basic inventory system but don’t want the bother and associated running costs of an oversized ERP/MRP system then there’s a good chance that miniMrp 2.1 is all the software you’re looking for.

miniMRP may look like a small package but that’s because it doesn’t waste space on rarely used features that nobody uses anyway. Why maintain an overweight, over-complex ERP/MRP system when all you really want is something that will manage an unlimited number of inventory items and when required, build, manage and cost single and multilevel parts lists and Bill of Material of almost any number of levels or complexity.

Would be interested to see comments from anyone that’s used this product.

Oracle Workflow Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Came across Workflow Frequently Asked Questions the other day and thought I would give it a mention.

Apparently the objectives of the site are:

  • To provide a “one-stop shop” for Oracle Workflow related queries
  • Provide advice and guidance for best practice with Oracle Workflow development
  • Provide an easy to use area where questions can be asked about Oracle Workflow
  • Provide an area for knowledge sharing, through the use of a Wiki

Site background is as follows:

WorkflowFAQ is the brainchild of Matthew Searle.

Formerly a Principal Consultant for Oracle Corporation UK, Matt is a subject matter expert in Workflow development, particularly within developing custom Workflows within the Integration space. Matt is the author of Developing with Oracle Workflow, and is currently looking for a publisher for the book.

Matt’s online CV can be viewed on LinkedIN.

Big4Guy ERP Blog

Came across this new ERP blog the other day which is worth a read. Big4Guy is blog which has confessions, thoughts, musings and observations of a Big4Guy. The description of the blog states:

Big4Guy is an online resource where I will share with you the latest news, insights, knowledge and my experiences as a Big 4 consultant. I will discuss some of the important issues which organisations are facing today in the areas of information security, security and controls in SAP R/3, Oracle Applications, J.D.Edwards, Peoplesoft and various other ERP’s. I will also attempt to provide valuable resources for individuals interested in the CISA, CISM, CISSP, and various other security certifications considered essential for entry in any Big 4 accounting, auditing and consulting firms. You are invited to post your comments and viewpoints to my posts. I sincerely hope my online journal will be useful to everyone from a budding student to a professional in the accounting, auditing, management and consultancy professions.
